Distribution centre ideal for mail order giant


A large industrial/warehouse distribution unit in a strategic location at a popular Somerset business park has been taken by a leading mail order firm.

Cox & Cox have moved into the 8,704 sq ft Unit P3 on Marshall Way at Commerce Park, Frome.

The quoting leasehold rent for the property was £58,000 with the firm signing a 10-year lease in a deal brokered by property consultancy Myddelton & Major.

Myddelton & Major Partner Philip Holford said: “Opportunities like this to secure the use of a fully fitted industrial/warehouse distribution unit with secure yard ready for immediate occupation do not come along very often.

“Cox & Cox, launched in 2001, sells a range of handpicked items for home and garden that are difficult to find in traditional catalogues – and needed additional premises as the business continues to expand.

Frome is situated in a strategic location on the Somerset/Wiltshire border with excellent road and rail access to major networks.

The M4 is accessed via the A36 and Frome station offers direct mainline services. Bristol Airport is approximately 30 miles away.

Commerce Park is located on the Frome bypass, midway between the M4, M5 and A303 corridors close to the junction of the A36 and A361.

Other established businesses at Commerce Park include Screwfix, Storagebase, the Premier Inn, Primavera Aromatherapy, Acheson & Acheson, Imperial Commercials and SRCL.
